“Love is one of the greatest dramas of human existence,” writes Pope John Paul II. Did you know that before St. John Paul II was pope he was an actor and playwright? His most famous play, The Jeweler’s Shop, explores the themes of attraction, dating, and the joys and struggles of love and marriage. The drama unfolds in three acts, each focusing on a different couple: the first happily planning their wedding, the second long-married and unhappy, the third about to marry but full of doubts.

Over three sessions we will read out loud (and perform!) the three acts, discussing the fundamental concerns that JPII addresses: What does it mean to fall in love? When do we know that love is real—and can it last? If it dies, how do we go on living—and loving again?
